Dont know. Got to check with Cathay Photo as they are the local distributors.

Good thing is that the Eye-One Match 3 software is compatible with the current Eye-One Display hardware.

That's the good point on the i1 Match s/w, one for all products. The problem is the 'upgrade' option now, if it's $200 USD less and the new set is $269 USD, it's worth a consider. :think:

CP is retailing Eye-One Display at SGD$600. Recently there was a drop in price for a few sets (read: Limited) at SGD$470. Eye-One PM is going at $3K+ for CP. Eye One Display if ordered overseas is about USD$229. Eye One Display-2 is USD$269.

ColorVision ColorPlus is going for $219 at CP, Spyder is going for $350 and Spyder Pro at $650, and Spyder Pro $755 with PrintFix. So depends on which one you're comparing at.

you have to buy a eye1 display then can upgrade tp eye1 photo or other packages!

pay 249usd (for eye1 display),
then get 200usd voucher,
then buy e.g. eye1 photo package for 1295usd (1495-200voucher)
so total cost is 1295usd+249usd= 1544usd
you will then get a set of eye1 display and one set of eye1 photo package.

i may get a set of eye1 display shipped to a friend in the states. then bring back to me on 21/10/04. anyone interested in the eye1 photo package? i will only ask for kopi lui=s$200:) if interesteed, pm me

sorry limited to one set

Just enquired about the Eye-One Photo for a friend, and I casually enquired about the new Eye One Display 2 today.

However, CP has mentioned that they will not have stocks for the Display 2 until end of next quarter(!) 2005.

Price and availability unconfirmed as well.

1Ds, you know of any other distro besides CP?

According to CP, the price of Spyder PRO dropped from $525 to $425 becos Eye-One Display went down to $470.

OptiCAL is the better software for professional users (and that's not me :).. If you just want to cal your display then PhotoCAL shud do the trick. I had actually intend to buy the basic Spyder but becos of the lowering of price on the PRO so i switched. The PRO and OptiCAL can be used to cal printers when you add the Print-FIX.

As for matching screen colour to printed image, i am quite happy just using the PhotoCAL/OptiCAL... like i say, i am no professional user so it good enuff for me. It beats using Mark I Eyeball anytime man!

Those of you who have the Eye-One Display v1 hardware, run, don't walk, to download the Eye-One Match 3.0 software - major improvement in calibration results can be obtained.

Now I know why my notebook LCD didn't quite look calibrated - with the new s/w it now is 99.5% similiar in color to my desktop PC (also on LCD).

:thumbsup: :thumbsup:
